my rule of thumb, if i havent used it in 6 months, no matter what it is (clothes, makeup, etc) i throw it out or donate it...it keeps me from having excess stuff that i havent used in 5 years cluttering up for no reason...i figure if i havent used it in 6 months, i dont need it and its taking up space...im a neat freak though :)
I have found that drinking Green Tea is helping - I have 3 - 6 cups a day along with at least 8 - 10 pints of water. Green Tea is proven to aid with weight loss as well as having other health benefits - also the caffeine found in Green tea is dramatically lower than black tea & coffee which of course means less caffeine happier body!! If you want to check or read more information on Green Tea then follow the link and I hope this helps for you all as well 30
